We celebrated British Runner Time with a run south to the Southville Centre. 20 amazing runners braved the unseasonal cold to help the centre prepare its garden for an open day coming soon.

Our run was short and quick - no point toying with it, and we found our way quickly to the Southville Centre in good time. We met up with Laura of the Patchwork Project who was here unofficially as this was not part of their patchwork, but I've included a link in case you're interested!

We were asked to tear up weeds, prune trees, and generally spruce the place up for the open day next month, so as always, the gang set to with gusto. In the process they came across about 30 balls and a large selection of toys including a very feisty chimpanzee toy who was very good at hanging off branches.

30 minutes later, the garden was a lot nicer and ready to be prettified. Our jobs well and truly done, we headed off a slightly longer way before ending up in Queens Square for a lovely stretch - and it was still daylight! WOO!

A big welcome needs to be given to Lizzy for her first run, and a massive thank you to everyone who came. If you have read this far, a) well done and b) ignore what I said about Radio 1 coming next week. It's the week after. More time to get in touch with your inner student.

Also apologies for the random photo - my phone is refusing to export the photos to my computer. I hope you like the trains.
